Multi-talented singer-songwriter and Top 5 Billboard artist Blessing Offor released his latest track “My Tribe,” available on all digital streaming platforms. Starting off with a breakbeat reminiscent of soul music’s greatest moments, Blessing’s voice quickly comes into focus as his band starts to fill in.
A fuzzy sawtooth synth carries the chorus where Blessing hones in on what family, friendship, and community mean to him – a common thread that carries from his debut EP Brighter Days. Listen to the upbeat “My Tribe” at the link HERE.
“This song is a pure celebration of all the people in our lives who show up for us in good or bad weather,” Blessing explains. “It’s a reminder for us to not take them for granted.”
Bouncing around the vocal booth during recording sessions, Blessing kicks off the song with a beautiful summation – “You can keep your money / You can keep your gold / I’ll keep the ones who want me / Won’t ever let me go.” Living in the light of the people that love you feels like home; there’s no greater place to be than surrounded by those that support you and accept you for who you are. With canny arrangements and rich instrumentation, Blessing’s sharp production and writing skills are on full display with yet another ear-wormy summer hit. Watch the lyric video for “My Tribe” HERE.
2022 has proven to be a breakout year for the Nigerian-born, Nashville-based singer/songwriter. Recently, Blessing garnered a 2022 Dove Award nomination for “New Artist of the Year.” Earlier this year, Blessing released his debut EP Brighter Days to critical acclaim, with the self-titled track peaking at #2 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart. “Brighter Days” remains a famous track at #8 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart.
Blessing made his national television debut on NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, and subsequently released the Brighter Days (Live Sessions) EP, featuring intimate live versions of tracks from his debut EP. Additionally, Blessing collaborated with GRAMMY® winner TobyMac on his new single “The Goodness.” The track is currently at #6 on the Christian Airplay chart and climbing on all Christian radio charts.
